February 17 marks the beginning of the 40 days of Lent. The word "Lent" can be traced to an Old English word "lecten" which is related to "lengthen" referring to the lengthening of days in the Spring season. It's a time for spiritual renewal and what some call a "spiritual spring." So we offer you this series, "Renew" consisting of seven short (2-minute) reflections by Bishop Anna Greeenwood-Lee during these 40 long days before Easter. The videos will be available on Twitter, Facebook and in the media section of the diocesan website beginning Wednesday, February 17 and each Wednesday after that during the season.
